Our Test Results:


Produces a pearlescent brght blue colour in clear MP Soap Base and a pastel baby blue tone with no shimmer in white MP Soap Base.  In CP produces a good depth of colour at fair concentration or more pastel if used at lower concentration.  If you want a popping blue, amp up the concentration!
pH sensitivity:  Stable in high pH  products such as CP Soap
Colour Fading: This colour is not light sensitive and not prone to fading
Colour Bleeding (Migration): Non bleeding, suitable for embedding, layering and swirling
Micas can be mixed in a little Fragrance, Alcohol, Water or Oil to moisten before use – Oil is the easiest for Micas.  This will minimise clumping and/or speckling.  


Note: Our Micas  are packed in resealable vials, tubs or jars unless purchasing 500g and above or surplus stock.
